Re: Hard shifts 1-2
A loose/stretched chain and worn sprockets can also cause hard shifts, at least that's what I was told by a mech. i struggle sometimes to shift from 1st to 2nd, especially when fast shifting, the gear slips into neutral and then there's the almighty rev and i have to deftly punch it into 2nd and then it takes. i put my bike on the paddock stand and spun the wheel. Chain is totally knackered and so are sprockets. so it may be true that is the cause. will have to keep old girl on the stand now until I find some cash to get a new chain and sprockets.
